Hi Axel!
Yes,we have around 11 pc running Ubuntu for critical Position like Frontdesk,Lab,PT but we have other 10 labtop running windows 7 and 8, used by directors and some Health Professionals.We have no plan of switching to Ubuntu anytime soon since these people have some windows software running and tough to pursuade them unless we really cannot fix the issue.

Best Regards;

Is there any software running on these PC that requires Windows (with no
alternatives and no workarounds, e.g. wine)? Or is it just because 'they were
always running Windows'.

So you may think about making the move to a Linux-Distro on the frontend,
giving you the ability to re-use old hardware. Beside some other advantages.
